Playfab and Photon Steam user authentication change

Presently our game authenticates users using Steam. This authentication is carried our when connecting to both PlayFab and Photon.

Should we release our game on a different platform, I would like to know if it would be acceptable to switch to authenticate PlayFab using LoginWithPlayFab or LoginWithEmailAddress. We would then use anonymous authentication for Photon. I just want to double check that the anonymous authentication would be acceptable.

Related to this change, would we need to use a different Playfab server/title for the non Steam version? Would we need a different Photon server/App?

Hello,

This authentication change is acceptable. Just note that anonymous authentication is not recoverable, so you may want to link store any data associated with this anonymous login with a login that is recoverable.

No, you do not need to create a different PlayFab title/server or Photon server/App for the non-Steam versions.
